RE: what color dory

That's CLC's Dory which I believe is black. Mine is navy blue and I can't find a pic that shows the color any better than CLC's. In fact if you check out the pics of our boats side by side on the OkoumeFest 2009 link here they look the same color. Green would work just fine, in my opinion. As far as how it handles, I had mine out in rough water and hard winds on the Gulf coast and it had no problem handling it. There were two of us in the boat, a total of 300 pounds or so. Dory's are designed to handle heavy seas with heavy loads. I hate rowing, give me a kayak any day of the week, but it had a good glide even with the conditions. Those who love rowing really like the boat so it must be ok! There are some people who might be able to row faster than a kayak, others who couldn't, so it's hard to compare performance. Again, I'll stick with a kayak...

You might want to ask someone who has one how re-entry is. The transom is at an angle. Not sure how easy it is to climb back into the Dory.
